When one thinks of Campania, the first thing that comes to mind is the Amalfi Coast – and for a good reason: blessed with one of the most amazing landscapes of the Mediterranean, this stretch of rocky land overlooks the blue Tyrrhenian Sea and offers everything a visitor might desire. Behind every corner the views are so stunning you will find yourself constantly reaching for your camera, and every town will charm you with its pastel colors, the scent of lemons wafting through the air and the incredible, almost palpable, energy that makes this region so very special. As popular as this area is, the best months to visit are those in the late spring and early autumn: still, even in August, the Amalfi Coast, although more crowded, will retain its beauty. Numerous passenger and car ferries connect the area to the islands, making the Amalfi Coast a good starting point to explore Capri, Ischia and Procida. Shopping fanatics should head to Positano, where they will find everything their heart might desire, from ceramics workshops to chic boutiques. Also, if you are an aspiring chef, you might want to check out the numerous cooking courses available in the area who will teach you to cook like a local!
